Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has decided against pursuing a deal for Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the summer according to the Standard.
The Gunners striker will be a free agent at the end of next season, and Arsenal will probably have to sell him in the summer if they cannot agree on a new deal with last seasons Golden Boot winner.
The report reveals that Mikel Arteta’s side is negotiating a new deal with the 30-year-old, but they are struggling to agree on a weekly salary as Aubameyang is looking for £300k per week to sign a new contract.
However, United have been his major suitors in England and the Red Devils have a history of buying Arsenal’s best players.
In the past, they have signed Alexis Sanchez and Robin van Persie, but they won’t pursue their interest in Aubameyang.
Standard Sports claims that a striker is high on the list of priorities for United ahead of the summer, but they will focus their attention on landing their other targets.
This should hopefully come as a boost to Arsenal, who will pray that Aubameyang will finally sign a new deal.
